Institutional Review Board

Most IRB processes, guidelines and forms have been revised for the 2015-2016 academic year. Please use the new forms and review the current guidelines before submitting a new IRB proposal or class project.

The Role of the IRB: Protecting human subjects

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews research projects that involve human subjects to uphold two broad standards: first, that subjects are not placed at undue risk; second, that they give uncoerced, informed consent to their participation.

With representation from a range of disciplines within The College at Brockport and from outside the academic community, the IRB strives to give prompt but individualized attention to human research projects.


All current IRB applications, forms, and templates.

Be advised that many of the IRB applications and forms have been updated in 2016. Please make sure you have the most recent versions.
